For 25million and playoffs on the line, he better tape that thing up and go win some ball games.     Seriously tho, that is one tough 38yr old.  I’m still whining about the cut I got on my thum

If Rivers is having surgery after the end of the season, then, in my opinion, he is having surgery after the end of his career.

I could see this causing Rivers to hang the cleats up after this season now.   There was a good chance anyway,  it this has to increase it, IMO. And doing it blocking none the less.

I like JB and have defended him a lot but he isn't better than Rivers, JB could beat the Texans IMO but with Rivers it is almost certain hurt toe and all.  

He isn't better than a 100% Rivers.  whether he's better than the Rivers we have depends on how limited Rivers is.

Are we saying as Colts fans that we love Philip Rivers and want him to come back ?

 

Enquiring minds want to know ....

I love him and want him back. He is the closest thing to Luck than some college drafty. I like JB but he is better than the mountain 4th and 1 man lmao

I honestly cant tell there is anything wrong with his foot when im watching.

Yep rivers is doing his job to take care of it during the week so he can play.  Like I said after watching him last week I wasn’t worried about him on it today.

Loving him has nothing to do with it.  I loved Vinatieri but it was time for him to go.  

 

Sad to see this being a more serious injury for him.  It's great the way he played and I am glad we won.  I hope he can continue to manage it and play effectively.  He is our best option and I would really like to se this team take a run in the playoffs.  I know in 2006 I thought they just weren't good enough and yet still won the SB. It is always possible (if not probable).

 

Still not ready to crown him for next year yet.  It would depend on how he looks as we go into next year.  One year older and recovering from what appears to be off season surgery.  

 

If he can perform at a high level - sure!

I loved Adam but he was clearly done, Rivers looks like he can play another year IMO

I get it.  I hope he can and I would like to see an even better year next year since the team will have more time together to improve.  This was a bad year to need to bring in a new QB but it has gone pretty well.

 

I'm just not willing to hand him the keys until we know what we are getting.

Yeah we at least need to make the playoffs IMO but I think we will. Lets see how it plays out.

Back in my playing days I had a knee injury that didn't really hinder anything other than playing with pain.  So, during the game, I did things to manage the pain (for me it was aspirin before the game and then more at halftime) but then the rest of the week, I kept my knee wrapped to limit movement and limit pain.  

 

Sounds like that is Rivers' approach to his foot injury, he can still play and do his job it's just a matter of managing the pain during the game.

    • Agree about the TE.  I’m still hoping for Ertz. 
    • http://draftboardguru.com/valueoff/ http://draftboardguru.com/valuedef/   Interesting stuff here  
    • You said pretty matter-of-factly that AV was willing to sign a one year deal.  We certainly don't know that.  Obviously, as we get deeper into FA and the draft approaches (and soon passes), remaining FAs have a better idea of what teams value them at compared to what they initially thought they are worth.  My guess is AV has either asked for more money or is seeking a longer deal than teams are willing to give him (or a combo of the two), as there is obviously a reason he hasn't been signed...    As far as LT goes, I don't think it's certain that we don't have at least a league average guy in there among Davenport, Tevi, Pinter and O'Donnell.  Davenport started 15 games in 2018 for the Texans and 8 games in 2019 for the Dolphins (before getting hurt), I don't see anything in there that says he isn't at least average for an NFL starter.  Tevi started 15 games in 2018 (most at RT), 14 in 2019 (at RT) and 14 in 2020 (at LT) - again, he's not the best OT in the NFL, but I don't see anything glaring about him to suggest he isn't around league average.  Keep in mind, whoever plays LT for us is going to be playing next to the best LG in the NFL (Big Q, assuming he stays at LG and doesn't move to LT), a top 3 C in the league (Kelly) and solid guys in Glow and Smith to complete the line.  Additionally, between MaC and Doyle, we have two solid blocking TEs to help if needed.  If Tevi and/or Davenport were slightly below league average in MIA and LA, my guess is that playing on a line with this much talent will help nudge them to average or above average.     We have league average starters at CB.  Xavier Rhodes was one of the best CBs in the NFL last year and he's coming back.  Kenny Moore III is one of, if not the best slot CB in the NFL.  Sure Ya-Sin had some troubles last year, but he isn't as bad as many make him out to be and my guess is that he'll improve in his 3rd year.  We also have Tell returning and he looked very promising his rookie year before opting out to COVID last year.     As far as edge goes, I think the FO is probably pretty high on Turay.  I also think we'll bring Houston back.  I'd like to see us address this in the draft, but if we get Houston back, along with Turay, Lewis, Muhammad, and Rochell we're probably in very similar shape as last year (I see Rochell as a similar, but younger, player to Autry - he'll have to prove it, but he should benefit from playing alongside Buckner).  We may be in better shape than last year if Banogu makes a big leap and if we have Turay fully healthy from Day 1.   Not saying you're wrong... but can you provide a quote from Ballard where he talks about wishing he did more after the season was over?  I don't recall him saying much about have major regrets by being inactive the previous off-season after a season ended.
    • Phillips may not be,  but Paye absolutely is.   That's what reviews of his work say.....    He has barely scratched the surface of his ability and needs NFL coaching.   Not sure what you're reading,  but what I'm reading says the opposite.  
    • Well, AC did sign a 2 year deal and he hasn't really dealt with injuries the way he did last year throughout most of his career.  Part of me thinks Ballard thought 2 years with AC meant two years - though I understand your stance as AC openly stated he was contemplating retirement before last season.     I think Ballard is also very big on keeping the trenches solid.  He's said that since day 1 and he took one of the worst OLs in the NFL and has turned it into one of, if not the best in the NFL in a relatively short time.  One thing I really like about Ballard is that he looks multiple years out in drafts -- my gut tells me he probably didn't do a ton to address the LT position as much last year (at least in the draft) due to the fact that this draft is very deep with OT talent.  For all I know, Ballard and the coaching staff could be content with what we have on the OL as is -- or we can still address it in FA (e.g., Villaneuva) or in the draft -- either way, I trust that Ballard's not going to allow this team to go into the upcoming season with an OL he's uncomfortable with.
